Comic #331

1 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: The interesting part about this job is seeing how people react when they see us and realise they're dead.
2 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: For some it's fear of the unkown. For others relief at being released from the mortal coil. Some are angry and defiant.
3 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: What's the most common feeling you've encountered?
3 Death of Choking On A Giant Frog: Embarrassment.
4 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: Embarrassment?
4 Death of Choking On A Giant Frog: I had a long stint as Death of Being Covered in Custard and Smothered By Licking Kittens.

This is after the meeting with the Head Death shown in #329. Don't ask me where they're walking to on an infinite featureless plane. I just thought it'd be cool to show them walking.

It seems the rivalry between Death of Being Sat On By A Giant Frog and Death of Choking On A Giant Frog manifests mainly in front of mortals - "in the field" so to speak. When they're off duty they can relax and enjoy a beer together.

Well, if they had stomachs.

And Choking On A Giant Frog really has worked his way up, hasn't he?

2012-11-19 Rerun commentary: Wow, it was a "friendly" rivalry at this stage. Their relationship became a lot more openly antagonistic as the comic developed.

And notice how it's still just "an infinite featureless plane", in a sort of generic sense, and not "The Infinite Featureless Plane of Death".

Things tend to become more significant as plot develops around them.

By the way, strips like this were often infuriating to make. The Deaths were difficult to stand up in walking poses on the LEGO studded plane. And often placing a second figure would result in bumping and knocking over the first. Then replacing the first would result in bumping and knocking over the second. Etc. This was a lot worse in some later strips involving a dozen or more figures at once.
